With the slogan “when your heart stops breathing, you’ll keep tweeting”, the developers of LivesOn claim that your Twitter account can keep tweeting forever, similar to the way you tweeted, after you die. According to the website, the LivesOn artificial intelligence engine analyzes your Twitter feed, learning your interests and syntax to ‘train’ itself to become an online reflection of you. In contrast to other managers of your social media afterlife, LivesOn mimics your personality to pretend that you never even died. Your followers might not even notice the difference.

What is your view on the coronavirus?
Siri Beerends: I really embrace the idea that viruses can teach us a lesson in modesty. It is necessary that our position as the dominant species on the planet is being challenged. I also agree that it is a mistake to think that we are becoming Gods. But unfortunately, this is actually what is happening now. Corona doesn’t teach us to be modest, it teaches us how we can -as quickly as possible- go back to business as usual: saving our capitalistic economy.Comment
